is what it could mean and insist we will get off the road to greece. >> i don't doubt that 72% want to see the spending cuts. which way do you think the public sentiment swings if there is a government shutdown? >> i think that pat toomey is confused. it's a continuing resolution. if they don't fund the continuing resolution, the government will shut down. if they don't lift the debt ceiling, the economy shuts down. not only the u.s. dme, maybe the world economy, and the consequences are drastic. bottom line on this, michael, and you know this, nobody should be threatening or rattling sabers, everyone, president obama, harry reid, everyone knows we need significant spending cuts. it's about time be act maturely, find out the spending cuts we need to make are done in the least onerous way. we also need to raise more revenue. the fiscal cliff raised 600 billion in revenue. we need to raise another $600 billion in revenue and need to find a way to dos that as well. >> do you agree with that sentiment? constantly hear from people who say the spending is out of control and if this is spun as re
look unprepared in any way? don't be ridiculous. representative john yarmouth coming up on the big show today. we're getting a serious gun control debate in this country. how about that. >> we are. we're going to have the conversation. the idea is to keep the momentum going. people are outraged after newtown that it is time to do something. we have to keep the momentum going in order to get something done. >> stephanie: i thought wow gabby giffords and her husband a lot of the stuff they said -- >> powerful. >> stephanie: both gun owners, both second amendment people but just -- who more powerfully can make that case? >> 11 mass shootings since tucson. >> stephanie: i know. we'll get into all of it. here she is, jacki schechner in the current news center. >> good morning, everybody. vice president biden is holding a meeting at the white house today with victims' groups and gun safety organizations. this is the next in a series of meetings. that administration officials are having with stakeholders as they look at recommendations to hand to the president by the end of the month on how we

and probably senior democrat on the committee, so that, to me is part of the problem in the system and i don't to continue. >> why do you think they would be interested in putting the money there? let's look at it. i said the year of the flood comes every other year now, it seems. as congressman jeffries said new york and new jersey are donor states. if we got back what we gave to washington we wouldn't being have this discussion. we could take care of ourselves, but we don't. but the likelihood of places like mississippi, louisiana, florida and the gulf coast states will get a lot faster than we are and what's going to happen now is you're going to have members of congress from new york and new jersey and connecticut in the northeast states that may say, you know what? we're going to parcel out aid to you more slowly than you gave it to us. >> so this is what i learned this week in preparation for this. our flood policy is a total disaster? >> yes. >> and you've had this experience first hand. it's really important. it may sound remote to you, but listen to me, we'll have more floods so we
in washington who personally don't like chuck hagel. they may actually like him personally but he rubbed some people the wrong way in the course of doing politics in d.c. what do you think is going on here with someone like senator mccain says one thing six years ago and another thing today. people like lindsey graham bring up the word "israel" an awful lot. what's at the core of the opposition? >> i think some of those substantive issues do concern him? . john and joe are right. chuck hagel has distanced himself from the republican party in a real and significant way. he essentially voiced support in 2008 for then senator obama's campaign for the presidency. traveled with him offer seas and really worked to squash concerns raised by mccain at the time and some of the fringe of the republican party barack obama was unfit, unqualified and maybe not even an american. this confirmation hearing will be important. it's obvious even some democrats want to hear answers from senator hagel on a variety of issues. have confidence he will be confirmed unless one of these senators steps forward and says
films. c-span: one question about teach for america. how big of an ego destroyer is that when they don't take you? how many young people try to become teach for america? >> guest: i couldn't believe it. i thought, i'm trying to help people and be a teacher and you get it, but it hurt. i wouldn't be sitting here if that hadn't happened. i ended up interviewing wendy kopp from teach for america for my first son, so it came full circle. c-span: go back to the project of going around the country. where did you go, how many people really do how much did it cost you? >> guest: in fall 2005 a data for three of of my best friends. it was really cheap. we were scrapping together money from family and friends. we get sponsorship money from nantucket nectar's and penske corp., but he was really bootstraps, rest guerrilla filmmaking. i'd never held a camera before, never taken a civil class before. it is just learning as we went. it is really an exhilarating experience. what an honor to go up to anyone across the country and get their story and speaks them about truth sendups of their lives. it wa
many times have you heard this -- "don't go outside with your hair wet. you'll catch a cold." do you think that's true? >> yeah, i do think it's the truth. >> yes. >> why? >> because your hair's wet, and it's cold outside. >> yes. >> why? >> because i've done that before, and i got a cold. >> yeah, my hair froze once when i was coming back from swim practice. >> if you go outside with wet hair, you are inviting a bad hair day, but you're not inviting a cold. >> scientists in england found that warning just doesn't hold water. >> that's just one of the health myths checked out by realsimple.com. here are some others. gum stays in your stomach for seven years. do you believe that one? >> yes. >> why? >> 'cause it's sticky. >> no, i think you digest it. >> file this one under myth. the experts say your digestive system does dissolve gum, though it might take a few days. but don't make a habit of swallowing it. eat an apple instead. after all, "an apple a day keeps... >> the doctor away. >> and not just apples. there are all kinds of fruits that are better for us than candy and cookies.

executive action if you're ever going to do it it, maybe now would be the time. >> alisyn: i don't think you need to. >> tucker: what you don't want if you're the president is to have a national debate on the subject because there's no evidence, never been any evidence, i mean data evidence, social science that shows at that guns control reduces crime. if you would get it through congress you would have adults talking about it in public and that's messy and unfortunate and difficult. >> what we want. >> tucker: it's easier to force through on executive order. >> alisyn: we shall see if that's what their plan is and we'll talk more about what the center for american progress proposed. you know the story of the journal news, at that published the names and addresses legal gun owners our own judge jeanine pirro was on that list, last night on her show, she just-- well, first what she did was send one of other producers to the journal news to try to get answers for why they did this. let's see what happened when the producer showed up. >> why won't you talk to us? can you tell me why you guys re

will not negotiate over whether to raise the debt limit. why don't you believe him? >> well, i don't believe him for sort of practical reasons and partly for the history of his negotiating style. the practical reason is we have a couple of things coming up that he is clearly going to negotiate over, one of which is the sequester, the automatic spending cuts that they delayed for two months when they did the fiscal cliff deal. that is going to expire late february and early march. it is hard for them to say we are going to negotiate but don't call it a debt ceiling negotiation. we'll just call it a sequester negotiation. i think that is a difference without a distinction. i think what the president demonstrated in the end of the fiscal cliff negotiation and a couple of previous negotiations is he is a guy who wants a deal even when he is holding all the cards as he was in the fiscal cliff negotiation. he is not a guy who wants to tempt fate. he doesn't like chaos. he wants to get a deal. he wants both sides leaving the table thinking they got something. he wants to prove that washington can work.

, right now, dealers have to make that transfer, but private citizens don't. that doesn't make much sense to us, because essentially you are putting yourself in the same position as a dealer. you are open to the public. but when we talk about universal checks, people may not understand what that means. that means when you give a gun to your child, or to your spouse, or you sell a gun to a friend or a neighbor, there is an important distinction there. you know who you sold the gun to. and i've never heard anyone say there is some big problem with criminals getting guns from people that own them lawfully and sold it to them. the problem, soledad, there are 500,000 guns stolen of yore in th -- every year in this country. >> so why not have -- a universal check. people would report that their gun was stolen. people would have to say i gave it to my spouse, i gave it to my child, i gave it to my friend, so you could track if that person gave it to somebody else. why would that be a bad thing? and how would it interfere with the second amendment? >> it creates problems where there is no problem
with illegal guns and-- >> we don't know those. think about that, people that didn't go through the year long process and took about a year for all of you-- >>, but that-- >> and on a map. >> what the right to privacy. >> the worst thing we're going to see right now, as a legislator, your i disagree with mr. gold on this, you're going to see bills from the senate and assembly that are going to protect us in this manner, but they're going to be coupled with gun control laws that are going to be hideous to us, that are going to be absolute-- come as a package and that's the way that it's going to get passed. >> sean: we're out of time. give you all-- give yourselves a big hand. thank you all for coming. [applause]. and i really appreciate it, thank you all. that's all the time we have left for this week. let not your heart be troubled. we'll be back on monday and i hope you have a great weekend. >> >> good morning, it's saturday, january 12th. i'm alisyn camerota. thanks for joining us so early. the white house is getting pressed on the hill to do just that the latest on the gun control battle
they are going at it through the money angle. very, very smart process, but i don't think -- they're not staying true to the second amendment. >>steve: you mentioned the current attorney general and his sound bite from back in the 1990's. here is eric holder talking back in 1995 about gun control. think about what he said then and how it applies now. >> what we need to do is change the way in which people think about guns, especially young people, and make it something that's not cool. it's not acceptable. it's not hip to carry a gun anymore. in the way in which we changed our attitudes about cigarettes. when i was growing up, people smoked all the time. both my parents did. but over time we changed the way in which people thought about smoking. now we have people who cower outside of buildings and smoke in private and don't want to admit it. >>alisyn: that was his feeling in 1995. we don't know if that is still eric holder's feeling is today. if there is any common ground, what they've said they all agree on is that the background checks need to be better. even the guns -- the n.r.a. felt that
to cut my particular item on the budget, they don't want to cut anything. so it's not clear if they really believe in it. based on the best data i have when writing this book lowest 10% and highest 30%. so lib tarnse if they were conscious and political, they could be a big movement. it could be a group of people that have a lot of influence in politics but they are not organized that way right now. >> what you might not know sunday night at 8:00 on c-span q&a. >> the inspector general overseeing reconstruction efforts in afghanistan said the u.s. risks losing billions of dollars without proper oversight of the projects. those remarks same at the same time that president karzai. this is 50 mens. >> thank you very much. and thank you very much for everyone showing up this afternoon. they were very generous comments and i am honored to be here today at the stimson center, an institution named for and inspired by a man who helped to guide the nation through some of the most difficult challenges that we have ever faced. and an organization that i remember calling upon for guidan

as well or will it just stay high now for the rest of the flu season? we don't know the answer to this. also this particular strain. it's h3n2 just appears to be a more severe strain. we've seen this before. it was severe then, it's severe now. more people having significant sickness as a result. >> every year around this time you hear two things. people saying every time i get a flu shot it makes me sick so i'm not going to get a flu shot. or they say i never get a flu shot and i'm healthy and so i'm not going to bother getting a flu shot. so as a doctor, what do you tell them? >> the flu shot is not perfect. it's about 60% effective. there's another flu virus going around not included in this shot so it's much better than nothing. it takes a couple of weeks for your immunity to build up after you get the flu shot so you're not protected right away. here's an important point and i think you and i have talked about this before. when you get a flu shot, what the body is doing is sort of ramping up the immune system. so it's recognizing that virus so that if it sees the virus again, it c
you can locate people. you don't talk about a settlement really at the moon, but more and more people that i know that are aware of the economics, aware of history and what this country needs will agree with me that if you go to mars, you go there for permanency. if you go once and come back, go twice and come back i can tell you the senate will find out some other way to spend that money and we will have wasted everything we did. it's a government, conagra's that works on short term objectives to help keep their constituents satisfied by bringing home the bacon to get elected.
